how does a fixed gear a/c land gear up???

The 208B is a fixed gear aircraft and a "gear up" landing is not likely. Maybe the report is for a 208B with amphibious floats and that is the reference to "gear up"?

I was thinking the same thing.

Google the tail number and you see floats.

That was an expensive mistake.

I knew something was wrong because it took full power to taxi to the ramp.
